Take Back Chicago

Posted: Updated:

Are you upset with the closing of mental health facilities? Loss of affordable housing? Corporate loopholes? Shrinking middle class?

If you are looking for a sign of hope in troubling times, you need to check out Take Back Chicago. This is a movement of community organizations, unions, religious institutions and your neighbor next door.

Take Back Chicago is a creative response to the growing divide between the very rich and powerful top 1% and everyone who lives paycheck to paycheck.
Take Back Chicago is rallying hope, organizing hope and believing that together we can build a Chicago for all 100%.

The kick off event is October 15th at the UIC pavilion at 6:00.
